its development of a smartphone that will be exclusively carried by AT&T. Apple and Samsung currently occupy a great deal of the smartphone market, but can Amazon compete? The smartphone (officially announced today) will distinguish itself with the following features:
- a screen that uses 4 front-facing cameras to track retinal movement to display 3D images without special glasses
- 4.7 inch display (slightly larger than current iPhone models)
- a 12mp rear-facing camera
For those who remember, Apple initially gave AT&T exclusive rights to its iPhone the first 3 years when it launched in 2007. Amazon plans to do the same. The smartphone market is huge--990 million were sold in 2013 and Amazon wants a piece of the pie.
Do you think Amazon have the capabilities to rival Apple and Samsung?
